Built from experience.

Our new range of Kalmar TL2 Terminal Tractors have been designed by combining our local knowledge and insights with the accumulated knowledge of manufacturing over 60,000 terminal tractors globally. In 1958 Kalmar built the first Terminal Tractor and since has stayed at the front of the market by focusing on delivering high quality machines with innovative features that have positive impact on the productivity of your business.

Built on a proven platform.

With over 10,000 machines built globally on our tested and proven platform can expect a terminal tractor that is ready to take on your toughest tasks. A common platform also has many additional benefits:

Proven chassis design: you get a highly stable and robust bolted chassis design, which is easier and quicker to maintain, repair or change than a welded chassis.

Common electrical systems: uses standardised error codes for fast and easy trouble shooting.

A standardised driver control panel: all machines have the same operator controls and interface, making it easier to move from one type of machine to another.

More options and features: building on our global platform means you get more options and features to choose from.

Built to save time and money.

Here are a few ways that you can save both time and money:

Reduce fuel consumption by up to 15%.
Smart programming combined with our highly efficient driveline can reduce your overall fuel consumption by up to 15%. Saving you money and reducing your carbon emissions substantially at the same time.

Less moving parts.
With the TL2’s hydraulics system you will have less moving parts to service and maintain over mechanical alternatives, saving you even more time.

Easier and faster to service.
With an easy lift cabin and all service points accessible from the ground, servicing will be safer and quicker.

Long service intervals.
With industry leading service intervals your terminal tractor will spend less time being serviced and more time operating in your yard.

Built for comfort.

Our new TL2 cabin has been designed to keep your drivers comfortable and in control, even in the harshest of conditions.

  • With an advanced climate control system fitted, your drivers can operate safely and comfortably in temperatures from -20c to 45c+.
  • Our ergonomically designed cabins come with adjustable steering wheel, seat and controls so they can be set to match your driver’s preferences.
  • The TL2 features non-slip access surfaces and hand rails for easy and safe access to the cabin and rear platform.
  • Our new cabin has improved visibility both forwards and to the rear platform, so your driver can operate safely at all times.

All the options you need.

In addition to a range of engines, axles and 5th wheels there are many other options that you can specify to meet your business requirements. Here are just a few you might want to consider:
